Lower End, Section #16

We're half-way up the big hill now. These pictures are not good, but I've already moved the camera higher up the hill so this is the only look at this section that I have to share - at least until the other camera starts coming DOWN the hill.

Upper End, Section #20 and Lower End, Section #15.

Very little (except squirrels) at either camera, so I'm combining posts again today. David was so right the other day; I wish they WOULD invent an 'ignore squirrel' mode....of the 44 photos on the upper camera, 40 were of squirrels and two were of me.

Meanwhile, the lower camera caught nothing but squirrels (and a couple of path-walkers), but I'm posting this just so you can see how that camera is now headed up the steepest hill on the path. The two cameras will be facing one another by the end of the week.

Sunday Special Edition #2

It's been quite a while since I shared a photo that was not captured by one of my own trail cams. When my brother in California sent me this picture from his yard, I knew it was time to resurrect the Sunday Special Edition feature. I've seen bobcats twice in Southeastern Ohio but have never caught one on my trail cams.

David is having one of the same problems I've had recently. He wrote, " I wish that camera had "ignore squirrel" mode. We got 400 pictures and 310 of them were of squirrels!"

Upper End, Section #19

The twins are hanging out around the acorns - no surprise there - but Mama is not with them, or at least not in camera range. We're just about to the time of year when a doe will separate herself from her offspring, getting ready to mate again in November. I think that the last of these pics IS the mother.

Lower End, Section #14

I'm running out of excuses. Camera quiet because it's so dry. Camera quiet because it rained all day, because it was really windy...and now I have a new one. A friend pointed out that every time the creatures of the forest discover a pile of Critter Mix, I move it on them a couple days later when I move the camera. Well, for now anyway, that's my excuse and I'm stickin' to it!

In any case, another quiet day. For those of you familiar with the path, the outhouse is just to the right of the camera for these photos.
